Independence Day, Constituent Assembly, May 2010 Election...

Republic Act No. 4166 signed into law on August 4,1964 by then President Diosdado Macapagal designating June 12, 1898 as our Philippine Declaration of Independence. More than hundred years ago, great and brave Filipinos fought for the independence and sovereignty of our beloved country. Many of them sacrificed their lives for love of our country. They gave freedom to the Filipino people against foreign colonization.

I don’t know what got into our congressmen and congresswomen’s minds to pass the Constituent Assembly at this point in time. They are denying the inclusion of extending the term of the president and other politicians and only proposed economic revisions. I heard once that part of it is to allow foreigners to own land here in our country. Are these people really too old to forget the sacrifices of our fellow Filipinos to gain the freedom we had since then? Is that the solution they are eyeing for in relation to the global crisis? Or maybe some or most of them have lands to sell and create more money out of it?

Filipinos are simple living people and politicians must admit to themselves that they are the reason why millions of Filipinos living miserably. There are massive corruptions everywhere and poor governance of our leaders. I don’t understand why Congress is pushing to change the constitution alone knowing their very bad image among Filipinos. All their actions are self centered.

I just hope and praying so hard that election will happen and if that time comes I urge each and every voter to scrutinize thoroughly the people they will vote for. We had enough of hardships and troubles. If we want change in our country, we must all realize that change starts from and within ourselves.

Each and every vote of us is a very powerful tool to choose good leaders to rule and guide us. We must learn from our mistakes and experiences. For our kids and loved ones, let us help the May 2010 election happen and cast our votes wisely.
